The SocioSite Project
Internet is rapidly transforming the production, distribution, and consumption of knowledge and information. Information is made available in electronic formats and through differing network applications. The information is expanding at a very fast growing rate. The latest sociological research finds its way onto the internet long before it reaches print or other traditional media. All social scientists have to come to terms with the internet and its digital resources.
SocioSite is designed to get access to information and resources which are relevant for sociologists and other social scientists. It has been designed from a global point of view — it gives access to the world wide scene of social sciences. The intention is to provide a comprehensive listing of all sociology resources on the internet. The enormity and constantly changing nature of the internet makes it impossible to develop a definitive and comprehensive listing. That’s why the SocioSite will always be «under construction».
We present the resources and information that are important for the international sociological scene. It links students of sociology to many interesting, sociologically relevant locations in cyberspace. SocioSite is a comprehensive information system which is very easy to use. That is why it has become a very popular yellow guide for social scientists from all over the world. SocioSite is a toolkit for us social scientists. It contains high quality resources and texts that can be used as wheels for the sociological mind.
SocioSite can only stay a useful instrument for all social scientists in different fields of sociological study when we join our forces. So please don’t hesitate to
- correct us where we are wrong
- give additions where we are incomplete
- make suggestions for improvement, and
- make your own contributions for a more powerful instrument.
It took many hours to make the SocioSite what it is today. It will take many more efforts to keep this site what it was meant to be: an accurate and comprehensive information system of the social sciences. We want the SocioSite to include high quality resources and texts from all sociological fields, from all countries and in any language. If you would like to participate in the network of correspondents for the SocioSite please contact us.
